Over at The Arena this morning they are asking whether the Democrats understand the meaning of their defeat in the Massachusetts senate race. My thoughts:
Do the Democrats ‘get it,’ you ask?
It’s a big tent party; some do and some don’t.
Somebody very cruel once said that Hubert Humphrey is a man who is twenty years ahead of his time — but that his time is 1948. That was a damning comment in 1972; it’s an even more damning one today, but I’m afraid this describes the mindset of a great many good Democrats.
